In Oria, you can queue for books that are on loan. Here you can read how to reserve. It is important that you make a remark that the book must be shipped to your local library. Otherwise, it will be placed on our pickup shelf when it is returned by the current patron.
NB! You will receive a pickup message when we loan the book to you. We will, however, send the book to your local library, so no need to contact us. You can sign in to Oria a couple of hours later. The book should then be loaned to you and no longer reserved.
Your local library will call you or send you an e-mail when your requested document arrives.
Movies (DVDs) will not be sent as they might become damaged during transportation.
You can deliver items at your local library, but the loan is not recorded as returned before it arrives at Agder University Library (UBA). Your local library does not have any responsibility for your loans, and you will not receive a receipt when you deliver the item at the library.
A book that we have borrowed from another library must be returned to UBA, not directly to the owner.
NB! If you live close to a college or university library, you can be registered as patron and borrow from their collection. Most libraries are also willing to borrow from other libraries if something is not included in their collection.
